From Waste to Resource: The Role of Conveyors in Recyling

Stainless steel washdown conveyors have become increasingly important in waste recycling and processing. These conveyors play a crucial role in the movement of waste material throughout these facilities, making it easier to sort and transport materials such as paper, plastics, and metals to their respective processing areas. One of the significant benefits of using these conveyors is the enhanced material movement efficiency, leading to better quality and quantity of recycled materials. Additionally, the caustic washdown capabilities of these conveyors make them easy to clean, ensuring the waste material being transported does not corrode or degrade the conveyor components. 

Hanover Conveying Systems (HCS) is a leading provider of conveying and sorting technology for the waste management industry. Our systems are designed to handle the semi-automatic or fully automatic transport of residual waste between two locations, from the point of origin to the point of processing or disposal. Because HCS is a fully custom conveyor manufacturer, we adapt to the specific requirements of each facility, ensuring disposal systems are created to fit the existing conditions.

HCS provides a range of solutions for waste management, including: 

  • Automated sorting systems
  • Conveyor belts
  • Feeding systems
  • Tilting devices

Belt conveyors are suitable for residual waste with different weights and dimensions. Tilting devices are a practical and inexpensive solution for waste disposal, and HCS offers low-maintenance and robust tilting devices designed for continuous operation. Feeding systems are designed to reliably move materials such as plastics, glass, and metals through the sorting and processing stages. 

Sorting and conveying technology is now an integral feature in recycling plants and waste management in general, effectively reducing the need for manual labor. Sorting plants are essential in the automated disposal of recycled material and residual waste, and with the help of our sister brand, PennAir, HCS provides sorting technology for a range of recyclables. 

The various sorting stages used to detect the type of material on the conveyor belt and sort out unwanted materials consist of:

  • Air classifiers or separators
  • Screens
  • NIR spectroscopy

The use of stainless steel washdown conveyors in the waste management industry has greatly improved the efficiency of waste recycling and processing. HCS provides a range of conveying and sorting technology, including feeding systems, conveyor belts, tilting devices, and automated sorting systems, designed to handle different types of waste. By investing in these innovative solutions, waste management facilities work both economically and efficiently while also contributing to environmentally friendly recycling. HCS’s experience in the field of waste disposal technology coupled with their ability to offer customized solutions makes them an excellent partner for companies looking to optimize their waste management systems.
